One man was shot dead early Friday in a North Charleston parking lot.

Officers were called at 1:20 a.m. to a report of a shooting in the parking lot of 7477 Northside Drive, said Deputy Chief Scott Deckard, a North Charleston police spokesman. 

"Upon arrival, officers located a male victim suffering from a gunshot wound and began to provide lifesaving aid," Deckard said. "Despite the efforts of the first responders, the victim died of his injuries on-scene."

Investigators identified a person of interest but no charges have been filed Friday afternoon. 

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 25-year-old Dontarius Pringle of North Charleston. 

The shooting is the 23rd homicide in North Charleston police jurisdiction and the 64th in the tri-county so far in 2020, according to a Post and Courier database. 

Anyone with information about the homicide is asked to call the North Charleston Police Department at 843-740-2800.
